I found this new e-magazine this morning, By Hand. So fun! The photo tutorials themselves are stunning. Check it out...
I look forward to their spring issue! Thanks ladies.

Chinese Coins is the current popular quilt being made at my guild. I wanted to make one for the community quilt drive, but there are several Christmas quilts on the list in front of it. What to do? Make a mini!
I have a bin of 1 1/4" strips already cut, so that made it easy.
I wasn't sure how many to stack, so I just kept sewing.
Hmmm... looks a little long for a quilt and a little short for a table runner.
So I took the bottom border off, trimmed off several 'coins' and sewed the bottom border back on. Much better.

I don't remember where I saw this, FaceBook, a blog maybe... I just couldn't pass it by.
Nothing in life is a mistake if I learn from it. I just need to stop mentally flogging myself for not being perfect. Yikes! Why do I think perfection is a good goal to shoot for?!
